Two-year-old Kayla is “obsessed” with the moon, according to her father. And now this obsession has been witnessed by more than 686,000 people as a video of her jumping and reaching to try and take hold of the moon has gone viral a few days after being posted.
“Go get it. Get the moon,” dad says in the video.
“I can’t reach it,” the distressed Kayla says after giving it a try. “Uh-oh, I can’t reach it.”
“Any time there is a clear view of the moon, she will excitedly shriek ‘THE MOON! THE MOON! THE! MOOOON!’,” Kayla’s dad with the YouTube username denmoff77 wrote in the video’s description. “This was one of those moments, and it’s actually just after her initial freak out.”
Watch the clip:
denmoff shared the video on Reddit, a social news and discussion website, and added that he usually doesn’t play along as much as he did in this video.
“I usually just ‘okay’ her until she stops,” he wrote. “But this time I played around with her a bit. She enjoys it.”
As an added bonus on the Reddit thread, the lunar puns that have cropped up prove quite entertaining as well . Here’s a look:
